What is your interest in the Mass. Studies Network?
I work with historical museums and sites, as well as other sorts of cultural organizations.
For the last 12 years I have been an independent museum professional.

I am a past president of the Massachusetts Humanities Foundation. The photo is from when I was an interpreter at Plimoth Plantation - it was actually a post card.
